Handscapes

In my mind, images of ancient handprints on cave walls are often a starting point for new work. I've been exploring interactions using white cotton gloves with the more-than-human-world.  This has become a way of participating in nature,  a way of “touching ground”, and providing a show of hands”.  These hands are evolving into wings and bird forms.  I have one "bird" that I like to take for walks and document her interactions in various places.
